(Wednesday, December 29, 2021) Our active weather pattern continues for the final week of 2021.

Each day features a new system that, in the short term, brings minor impacts.

We’re also keeping it seasonably mild through the end of the year.    

A series of weak systems will impact the Southern Tier for the last week of 2021.

The second one brought widespread snow Tuesday night.

The third will bring some rain and snow showers on Thursday. 

Until then, we have quieter, cloudy weather for Wednesday.  

Temperatures are seasonably mild Wednesday and Thursday, any precipitation that falls during the day with our next system should be in the form of rain although we can’t rule out some higher elevations snow showers.

New Year’s Eve could feature a few light rain showers.

Temperatures are above freezing during the day and night so no worries about snow or ice.   

The first weekend of the new year could be a messy one.

We start Saturday with warmth and widespread rain. It looks rather soggy.

Then we turn colder Sunday so rain changes over to snow showers.
